We stayed at The Quest Grand Esplanade Manly for 3 nights during the Easter School Holidays. We were only able to stay at a one bedroom apartment as the two bedroom apartments were fully booked. However, it also had a sofa bed and it was a spotless and comfortable apartment with a fully equipped kitchen. It also had a washing machine and dryer in a clean bathroom with a bath and overhead shower. This does cause a problem with a very wet bathroom floor after showers despite a plastic shower curtain. The apartment had a harbour view as the hotel is located close to the ferry terminal as opposed to Manly Beach which is several hundred metres walk. This is not a problem as it is a pleasant walk through lots of shops and cafes via the Corso. There are lots of nice cafes and restaurants within or near the ferry terminal such as Hugo's, Manly Pavilion, Bavarian Bier Cafe, Phoenix Yum Cha, etc. Nearby there is Adriano Zumbo chocolates and for great coffee there is Barefoot Trader's Cafe and Three Beans Cafe. There are lots of things to do in Manly with wonderful beaches, shopping at the Corso, bars, cafes and restaurants, Oceanworld Manly and taking the ferry to different parts of Sydney Harbour.
The hotel parking is free and is undercover secure parking which is great. There are limited facilities in the hotel but they do have a small fitness room with cardio machines and some weights machines.
They do not servicing and cleaning on Sundays for the rooms but otherwise it is daily servicing of the rooms. They do not have a restaurant but there are lots of choices nearby. However, two restaurants that were in the ground floor of the same building as the hotel must have ceased trading recently as we saw the empty shop fronts.
Another issue may be the outside noise as it can be noisy outside from passing traffic or noisy passers by.
Overall, the apartment was very clean and comfortable and I would definitely recommend The Quest Grand Esplanade Manly.
